The Costa GUI

Costa is a program which runs on top of MS-DOS or compatible operating systems, and replaces the DOS-prompt with a clean, user-friendly interface - a so called GUI (Graphical User Interface). Costa comes with full mouse and keyboard support, and a bunch of useful accessories.

The first release came in 2004, and over the years - and through several releases - Costa has gradually evolved into what it is today.

Did I mention that Costa is provided absolutely free of charge?
